Condor Consulting to Provide QA/QC and Interpretation Services for North American Nickel's SkyTEM Survey in Southwestern Greenland

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Sept. 14, 2011) - North American Nickel Inc. (TSX VENTURE:NAN)(OTCBB:WSCRF)(CUSIP:65704T 108). North American Nickel ("NAN") is pleased to announce that it has retained the services of Condor Consulting Inc., recognized experts in the field of airborne electromagnetics, to provide QA/QC and advanced interpretation services for the company's SkyTEM helicopter EM and magnetic survey at its 100% owned Maniitsoq project in southwestern Greenland. The survey is scheduled to commence at the end of this week and is being performed by SkyTEM Surveys ApS. SkyTEM is a Danish company with experience in Greenland and expertise in the execution and interpretation of helicopter TEM and magnetic surveys.

As outlined in a NAN news release dated September 12, 2011, the Maniitsoq property hosts numerous high-grade nickel-copper sulphide occurrences associated with noritic intrusions. The areas covered by the current survey were flown with the fixed wing GeoTEM system in 1995, but very few EM anomalies were detected. NAN believes that the SkyTEM system is much better suited to locating anomalies associated with irregularly shaped nickel-copper sulphide bodies in the rugged terrain that characterizes the Maniitsoq project. Condor Consulting will provide NAN with complete interpretation and post survey analysis.

The Company's current corporate presentation being used for marketing meetings in Toronto, including current information on the Maniitsoq project is now posted on the Company's website. To view the presentation, please visit:

About North American Nickel

North American Nickel is a mineral exploration company with 100% owned properties in Sudbury, Ontario, Maniitsoq, Greenland and the Thompson, Manitoba mining camp. The Company's initial focus is on two Sudbury, Ontario properties and its Greenland project.

The Post Creek/Halycon property in Sudbury is strategically located adjacent to the producing Podolsky copper-nickel-platinum group metal deposit of Quadra FNX Mining. The property lies along the extension of the Whistle Offset dyke structure, which is a major geological control for Ni-Cu-PGM mineralization.

The Bell Lake property in Sudbury is a 256-acre property that covers approximately one kilometre of the Mystery Offset dyke or MOD. The MOD is interpreted to be an extension of the Worthington Offset dyke which is a 10 to 11 kilometre-long mineralized structure that extends from the southwest margin of the Sudbury igneous complex.

North American Nickel also controls a 4,841 square km Mineral Exploration Licence in southwest Greenland with exclusive mineral exploration rights. The principal target is high-grade nickel-copper occurrences associated with norite and other mafic and ultramafic intrusions.

The Company has also acquired 100% ownership in the high-grade Ni-Cu-PGE South Bay property near Thompson, Manitoba and the large grassroots Thompson North and Cedar Lake properties, which are part of the world-class Thompson Nickel Belt in Manitoba. North American Nickel Inc. is a member of the North Shore Mining Group.
